Welcome to the 2019–20 season of concerts – LIVE Music on Sundays in Dunfermline – promoted by Dunfermline Arts Guild.
For fifty years we have provided opportunities for members to enjoy live music in an intimate setting that allows the audience to hear the music close-up and to interact with the artists. Those taking part are all professional musicians, many of whom are on the threshold of what will be glittering careers – you heard them first in Dunfermline!
Come for the season
The music you will hear is ‘chamber music’ in its widest sense, so in the course of the season you are sure to find lots to enjoy, whether you warm to the sound of brass or woodwind, tap along to the syncopated rhythms
of jazz, or prefer the more cerebral delights of a string ensemble. We welcome everybody to dip into our programme by coming to just those concerts that appeal.
However, those who have been members for some time will be the first to acknowledge that there have been concerts when only having bought a season ticket has encouraged them to attend. Afterwards they were pleased they had made the effort to turn out, having been surprised and delighted to discover something new, exciting and different.
Six superb live concerts for just £45!
So why not take advantage of our fantastic value season ticket price of just £45? Then you can enjoy six concerts for little more than the price of four. Membership of the Arts Guild, which enables you to participate in the running of our organisation, comes free with your season ticket!

Fergus McCreadie and his trio have been labelled as “the most exciting new talent to emerge from Scotland in a decade” (Jazz Scotland) and “one of jazz’s most compelling outfits”.
Fergus and his bass player David Bowden offer an innovative blend of jazz, classical and original compositions inspired by Scottish traditional music. The compositions are new, fresh and exciting – but also strike that point of familiarity for a listener that can make them seem like songs known since childhood.

Note that this concert will now take place in the Tiffany Lounge at the Carnegie Hall (access via the main hall entrance).More details at this link
